After three years of marriage, Adele and her husband Simon Konecki have announced they are separating.

30-year-old Adele and 45-year-old Konecki released a statement confirming the sad news, adding they were, "Committed to raising their son together lovingly". The couple also asked for privacy and added that there would be no further comment on the split.

The fifteen-time Grammy award winner has always been notoriously private about her family life. Following the birth of her son, Angelo, in 2012, the singer married charity entrepreneur Konecki, in a super-low-key ceremony in 2016.

Skipping the usual lavish celebrity wedding, the couple tied the knot just after Christmas at their £10million LA mansion, in front of close family and friends including Robbie Williams.

They managed to keep their marriage a secret until the following year, when Adele thanked her "husband" in her 2017 Grammy's acceptance speech.

In March this year, Adele and Jennifer Lawrence surprised the Internet by casually turning up to a gay bar in New York City for a girl's night out. Their unlikely friendship began in 2013, after the pair met at the Academy Awards and were pictured having what looked like the best night EVER.

The singer also set the rumour mill swirling that month after she was pictured entering a recording studio in NYC. With fans hoping that a follow up to her previous albums 19, 21 and 25 was on the way.
